Vintage "GUB Glashütte" German Watch from 1950's

Dispatches from Poland

Distinguished GUB Glashütte wristwatch from the 1950s, an era celebrated for its exceptional watchmaking. The timepiece features a mechanical movement, the epitome of the traditional watchmaking craft of the period. The case, 35 mm in diameter excluding the crown, is crafted from brass and steel, materials chosen for their resilience and time-honored appeal.

The dial, rendered in a classic gold tone, bears the hallmarks of vintage aesthetics, with gold hour markers and hands that have maintained their original luster. At the 6 o'clock position, a small yet intricate subsidiary dial serves as a seconds tracker, blending seamlessly with the overall design. The GUB Glashütte name is clearly inscribed, asserting the watch's authenticity and esteemed provenance.

Completing the look is a dark brown leather strap. This watch is not just a mere keeper of time but a wearable piece of history, reflecting the robust engineering and design finesse of Germany's post-war era. It stands as a fine collectible for enthusiasts who appreciate the blend of historical significance and mechanical precision.
